When a now road is to bo built, or
an old one relocated, the work should
always be staked out by an engineer,
if possible. liuilding a road without
a survey is almost sure to result in
wasting dollars to save pennies.

Sketch of the Life of Samuel Hill
Seventy-nine years, seven im-u'hs
and twenty-three days covers the hu
man life of him whose memory we
know with the songs, and prayers of
this hour. About .".(i years have been
counted in the record of the cluiivTi
of God; fifty years have been devot
ed to the loving and holy ollice of hus
band and father, and have been
crowned with the instinct adoration
of a devoted wife, and the tender af
fection of four children who linger
with us today.
The life of our departed friend was
not given to the world nor seen by
the world; his life was not perfect;
no human life is. Its sky was some
times visited with clouds, but they
were summer clouds. There were
crosses in it, but they did not dis
courage the sould which had drank of
the waters of the river of life.
There were sorrows, but they were
healed. It was not perfect; but I re
peat it is perfect today.
May father, mother ami the four
children some glad day walk hand In
hand through the elysion felted of
gh.ry to the I'aradi.-o of God.
